Police display some of the stolen artifacts that were recovered by authorities in Thessaloniki yesterday. Officers arrested two brothers on suspicion of trying to illegally sell the small collection of excavated antiquities. A raid on the suspects’ homes turned up 16 clay pots dating from the 7th century BC to medieval times and six ancient coins that had been carefully hidden in storage areas, police said. It was unclear whether the ancient artifacts, considered to be in excellent condition, had been dug up by the suspects. The suspects were identified as Greeks, aged 53 and 51.
